Peacock orders YA animated series ‘Supernatural Academy,’ announces cast and premiere date

Supernatural Academy, a YA animated fantasy series based on Jaymin Eve’s The Supernatural Academy books, has been ordered by Peacock. Gillian Horvath developed and wrote the concept, which comes from executive producer Allen Bohbot and 41 Entertainment.

41 Entertainment began developing the series in October of this year. On January 20, 2022, Peacock will premiere the half-hour programme. There will be 16 episodes in the first season.

The show, like the books, follows a group of sisters who are marked at birth on an otherworldly odyssey. One of the twin sisters was reared in the supernatural realm, where she was confident and well-liked. The other was raised as an outcast in the human world. They’ll be reunited at the Supernatural Academy soon, and neither of them is looking forward to it. To preserve themselves and the planet, these adversarial twins will have to learn to put their differences aside and trust one another.

“It is so incredible to see my original story come to life in this high-quality animation project,” Eve said.

“I am so grateful to both Peacock and 41 Entertainment for believing in me and I am sure that all of the fans of the books are anxiously marking January 20th on their diaries.”

41 Entertainment is in charge of the show’s production. Jody Prouse is the animation director, and Steve Ball is the series director. ICON Creative Studio provides animation services.

The adaptation is written by Gillian Horvath, who also produced it for the film. Steve Ball is the series director, and Allen Bohbot is the executive producer. The animation director is Jody Prouse. ICON Creative Studio provides animation services for 41 Entertainment. The original theme songs were written by John Majkut.
